House Democrats will soon vote on a formal resolution condemning President Donald Trump for his racist tweets about four members of Congress. After blasting the president’s words in her own tweet this weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House will go further.
Democrats will soon introduce a resolution condemning Trump’s “xenophobic” remarks. The resolution will be sponsored by Reps. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD). It’s not yet clear when the House will vote on the measure.
“The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand,” Pelosi wrote in a Dear Colleague letter. “Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets.”
